Poole Zion, Farband Add 35,000 Names
to Jewish Labor Committee Membership





n
NEW YORK (JTAl—The Jewish
Labor Committee (JLC) ended its
35th anniversary biennial conven-
tion here Sunday after approving
the affiliation with it of the Poale
Zion United Labor Zionist Organi-
zation and Farband. the Labor
Zionist fraternal order.

The JLC elected Charles Zim-

merman, 72, as its president to
succeed the late Adolph Held. The

affiliation of Poale Zion and Far-
hand will add 35.000 members to
the JLC, which represents 500,000
Jewish members of the AFL-CIO
and 65,000 Jewish families in the
Workmen's Circle and the United
I le brew Trades.
The 500-delegate convention was
greeted at its opening with a mes-
sage from President
i
Nixon who
hailed the JI.C's efforts "to bring
to those who have been left out or
left behind the benefits of our
social and economic life."
Premier Golda Meir of Israel
also cabled a message of greeting.
The affiliation of Poale Zion and
the Farband with the JLC was
recommended in a report by the
organization's national executive
committee, submitted to the con-
vention by Emanuel Muravchik,
executive director. The two Labor
Zionist groups had requested af-
filiation in November 1968.
The national executive com-
mittee's report noted that there
were no ideological reasons to ,
oppose affiliation. It pointed out
in its recommendation that of-
filiation "would make the JLC
for the first time the spokesman
for the entire democratic Jewish
labor movement in the U.S., and
this would significantly increase
our stature in American Jewish
life and our power within the
various coordinating bodies —
national, international and local."
Zimmerman, a vice president of
the International Ladies Garment
Workers Union, had been serving
as interim JLC president since Mr.

Reagan Expresses
Support for Israel

LOS ANGELES (JTA) — Three
California politicians who differ
sharply on many issues share
common ground when it comes to
support for Israel, a nation which,
according to Gov. Ronald Reagan,
is physically and climatically
much like California.
Gov. Reagan, Sen. George Mur-
phy (Rep.) and Sen. Alan Cranston
(Dem.) shared the platform at the
Western regional conference of the
Jewish National Fund of America
here recently. All three were pre-
sented with plaques signifying that
a grove of 1.000 trees has been
planted in Israel in each of their
names.
Gov. Reagan said that as a Cali-
fornian he could appreciate the
work done by the JNF in planting
trees and clearing the soil of Is-
rael. Sen. Murphy said he had
always favored full support for
"the democratic state of Israel."
Sen. Cranston said, "one of the
fundamental points of our democ-
racy is that although Gov. Reagan,
Sen. Murphy and I differ on many
issues, we stand together in sup- .
port of Israel."

Court Rejects Judgment

TORONTO (JTA)—The Canadi-
an Supreme Court has rejected an
appeal to set aside a judgment
against William John Beattie, a
neo-Nazi agitator. The appeal was
filed by Beattie's lawyer, Robert
M u r r a y, in connection with
charges that the self-styled Nazi
leader used abusive language in a
speech in a public park here in
May 1968,
. The charge was originally dis-
missed by a Toronto magistrate's
court on the ground that the by-law
governing the use of abusive lan-
guage was outside the city's/juris-
diction and thereby invalid. The
Ontario Court of Appeals later
over ruled the magistrate a"hd was

-upheld .by. the Supreme Court.

licld's death. He told the co ven-
tion that the JLC "will support any
action taken by the International
Association of Airline Pilots and
the Airline Pilots Association AFL-
CIO, in their efforts to get United
Nations and other governmental
action against air hijacking." Ile
said, "We also want to remind the
United States government that too
many days and weeks have passed
since an American airliner was
hijacked to Syria and that two
passengers, b o t h Israelis, still
fanguish in Syrian prison."

Family Court Judge Jacob T.
Zukerman, JLC first vice presi-
dent, warned that "responsible Ne-
gro and Jewish leadership must not
allow the alliance between Jews
and Negroes to crack." Judge Zu-
kerman, former assistant commis-
sioner of welfare, said that "ex-
tremist Blacks do not speak for all
Negroes any more than the Jewish
Defense League speaks for all the
Jews."
In an address to the closing
session, Jordan Band, of Cleve-
land, chairman of the National

Jewish Community Relations Ad-
visory Council, warned of "a vast
apparatus of Arab propaganda,
luxuriously financed" which is
trying "to drive a wedge be-
tween Americans on the one hand
and Israel and the Jewish people
on the other."
Band said that the Arab propa-
gandists w e r e making headway
among the New Left, the extreme
right, in the black community and
"among the Christian clergy — es-
pecially in those Protestant de-
nominations with heavy stakes in
Jerusalem and in the missionary
movement in the Middle East."

Band said Jews must counter the
propaganda "by at least an equal
increase and intensification of in-
terpretive activity by community
relations agencies and by other or-
ganizations . We must empha-
size the democratic character of
Israel, its role as an embodiment
and expression of the highest ideals
of freedom and democracy and of
self-realization for Jews, and its
reflection of the finest aspirations ,
of a people for self-determination."
